Law FellowTiffany Mane
While on a safari in South Africa, Tiffany was sure she was going to be mauled by lions. Thankfully, that didn’t happen! She did fracture her arm while studying abroad in the Dominican Republic, however. This required that she endure the discomfort of wearing a cast in 100-degree weather for six weeks.
While in the Dominican Republic, which is where her parents are from, Tiffany lived on a sugar cane planation, helping the village communities with legal matters. She volunteers on the home front, too, working with immigrant communities on employment law matters. She also mentors women of color who are aspiring to enter the legal field.
A graduate of Dickinson College with a Bachelor of Arts degree in American Studies, Tiffany earned her Juris Doctor degree from Howard University School of Law. She was a Full Tuition Leadership College Scholarship recipient from the Posse Foundation and a Peggy Browning Fund Fellow. If all of that isn’t enough to make her mother proud, she was also an Alternative Dispute Resolution Certificate Recipient and won the CALI Excellence for the Future Award for the highest mark in Immigration Law.
In her spare time, Tiffany likes to read personal development books and watch TV dramas, especially Law and Order: SVU marathons. She loves Indian and Italian food, as well as the cuisine of her childhood – Dominican food. She also loves to travel anywhere there’s a beach (even though she can’t swim), and Europe is on her bucket list.
As part of our team, we appreciate that Tiffany is a passionate and hardworking team player who isn’t afraid of jumping into any task assigned to her. She speaks Spanish fluently and is learning French/Creole. Plus, she is certified in mediation. All of these skills allow her to help our diverse clients resolve their family law matters, avoiding litigation whenever possible.
